Using this tool allows us to strategically plot out the desired velocity for each communication in a campaign that uses multiple media and predetermine the speed of interaction for each piece of the campaign. We then measure to see if we achieved the anticipated planned results.
There is a lot more to this than meets the eye, or ear, for that matter. Designing an advertisement to meet the desired result requires a specific balance of image, copy, offer, and target. Each element affects the pull of the ad and must be critically considered to achieve the predetermined result. Please see Figure 4.1.
